electronic specification for serial data connections between digital terminal equipment (DTE) and data communications equipment. (DCE) Signal is unbalanced. May be either synchronous or asynchronous. Can reside on multiple connector sizes, but most commonly appear on DB9/ DB25 connectors. 50' transmission limit.
(1) EIA standard for single-ended signalling of binary data, (2) EIA standard for interpreting a bit stream as bytes, (3) EIA standard for communication of data and status between two devices using a group of RS-232 signals, and (4) EIA standard for the physical connectors used for RS-232 communication cables. The RS-232 connection between a computer and modem, or between a computer and an RS-232 controlled camera, involves all of the above specifications.
RS-232 interface specification defines the number of wires that are used to connect a modem ("DCE") to a computer or terminal ("DTE"), the electrical signals that are sent along these wires, and the signal levels that are used. Frequently, the RS-232 interface is used to connect a terminal to a computer without intervening modem equipment. RS-485 and RS-422 are similar interfaces for interconnecting DTE devices.
RS-232 is an EIA standard which is the most common way of linking data devices together.
Short for recommended standard-232C, standard interface approved by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA) for connecting serial devices. In 1987, the EIA released a new version of the standard and changed the name to EIA-232-D. And in 1991, the EIA teamed up with Telecommunications Industry association (TIA) and issued a new version of the standard called EIA/TIA-232-E. Many people, however, still refer to the standard as RS-232C, or just RS-232. Almost all modems conform to the EIA-232 standard and most personal computers have an EIA-232 port for connecting a modem or other device. In addition to modems, many display screens, mice, and serial printers are designed to connect to a EIA-232 port. In EIA-232 parlance, the device that connects to the interface is called a Data Communications Equipment (DCE) and the device to which it connects (e.g., the computer) is called a Data Terminal Equipment (DTE).

RS-232 is an industry standard for the interface that your computer uses to talk to and exchange data with your modem and other serial peripheral devices. Serial refers to the fact that the data is transfered one bit at a time. In a parallel connection (such as a parallel printer), data is sent in groups of bits over multiple wires. The current version of RS-232 is RS-232C.

A format of digital communication where only two wires are required. It is also known as a serial data communication. The RS-232 standard defines a scheme for asynchronous communications, but it does not define how the data should be represented by the bits, i.e., it does not define the overall message format and protocol. It is very often used in CCTV communications between keyboards and matrix switchers or between matrix switchers and PTZ site drivers. The advantage of RS-232 over others is its simplicity and use of only two wires.
The RS-232 standard specifies signal voltages, signal timing, signal function, a protocol for information exchange, and mechanical connectors for a serial connection.
